What's the full story here?

php-gettext
    php-gettext-0:1.0.11-5.fc20.noarch  isn't obsoleted
    php-gettext-0:1.0.11-4.fc19.noarch  isn't obsoleted
    php-gettext-0:1.0.11-3.fc18.noarch  isn't obsoleted
    php-gettext-0:1.0.9-3.fc15.noarch  is oldest
    php-gettext < 0:1.0.11-3  obsoleted by  php-php-gettext-0:1.0.11-8.fc20.noarch

Searching a bit, there has been a rename to php-php-gettext and plans to
retire php-gettext because it conflicts with the core module, but the
package has been kept in the dist and mass-rebuilt several times:
http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=9618

So, meanwhile, the Obsoletes tag is insufficient, and the package
is available again. Is this intentional? Else, please retire it:

Comment 1 Robert Scheck 2013-09-13 16:40:17 EDT
I needed gettext for PHP for phpMyAdmin. However we figured then out that
php-gettext was in dual-use (PHP internal and separate package) and thus it
got php-php-gettext. The separate package php-gettext must be orphaned to
avoid conflicting the core module of the PHP main package.
